The approach to this riad requires four turns in a narrow passage - three to the left and one to the right. When you arrive at the large wooden entry, nothing suggests what lies behind. But when the door swings open, one immediately enters an utterly peaceful scene with tiled floors, a gracious fountain, palms, and other plants -- a luxury oasis away from the nearby bustle of racing motorbikes and donkey carts in Marrakech.
Our room, called Emma, had 18-foot ceilings, colorful Moroccan decor, and a vast, comfortable bed. We soon learned that the staff was as first-class as the living quarters. All of our questions were quickly and accurately answered. Breakfasts (included with the room) were varied and delicious. And don't miss the rooftop dinner, which combines a scrumptious tagine with four creative salads and dessert. It was a cool and windy evening when we dined, but a cozy fire made the best meal we had in Morocco even better.
We don't normally stay in first-class hotels, but this highly rated riad is more than worth it.More
